Michael Oppenheimer

Princeton University

Michael Oppenheimer, Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs at Princeton University, will write a book on how science affects public policy. He will discuss how non-governmental organizations mediate between scientists and policy-makers, and how this process shapes policy on technical issues. The book will focus on climate change, and how non-governmental organizations helped popularize a system of tradable pollution permits as a way to control acid rain and greenhouse gases
